Cheesy garlic bombs

Don’t expect these to last very long!  You could make a meal out of these with a side of the typical main course, but I recommend trying to make them last for numerous tasty snacks and meals.  If you are a fan of cheesy garlic bread and want a simple and delicious non-frozen version, you have to try these!

Recipe – Makes 16 single servings

Ingredients:

  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon dried basil
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 (16-ounce) tube refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
  • 48 fresh mozzarella pearls, drained (Cubed string cheese sticks can be substituted)
  • ¼ cup freshly grated Parmesan
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Lightly oil a 24-cup mini muffin tin or coat with nonstick spray (unless non-stick)
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together butter, garlic, oregano, basil and salt; set aside.
  3. Halve each of the 8 biscuits, making 16 pieces. Working one at a time, use a rolling pin to flatten each piece to about 1/4-inch thickness. Add 3 mozzarella pearls to the center of each biscuit piece before rolling into a ball.
  4. Place into the prepared muffin tin and brush each ball with half of the butter mixture; sprinkle with Parmesan. Place into oven and bake until golden brown, about 8-10 minutes.
  5. Serve immediately, brushed with remaining butter mixture and garnished with parsley, if desired.
